Nerf Battle a Success!

Thanks to all who participated and made our event full of so much fun and fellowship! This was a great activity for relationship building...and for seeing each other in a new light. You might be surprised at how good our adults are at Nerf battles! Everyone ended the day wondering when we could do this again. (If you are curious about who came out the winners in the Kids vs. Adults competition, we believe we were all winners since we had fun together...but, really, the adults did beat the kids! Woohoo!)

Youth Group Fun!

Bowling is Tuesday! We will be meeting at Camelot Lanes in Boardman at 1pm. If you need to meet at the church and carpool, please let Jen L. know so arrangements can be made. All participants need to bring $6.00 to pay for the two games and shoe rental. If you want your child to purchase a snack there, feel free to send additional money.

We are excited to announce a painting adventure, scheduled for August 26th. Youth Group kids are invited to bring a lunch, stay after Worship to eat together, and then learn some painting skills from Adam Pratt. We will provide all the materials, Adam will provide the fun and instruction, and the kids just need to be ready with the willingness to give art a try. Sign up sheet coming soon.

Drop off clothing and outerwear here, any time throughout the year! Take items to the storage room by the Cafe or up to the Green Room.

For I was hungry and you gave me food;
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink;
I was a stranger and you took me in;
I was naked and you clothed me;
I was sick and you visited me.
I was in prison and you came to me.

.....When you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,
you were doing it to me.

Matthew 25: 35-36, 40
